Diego of Colombia Receives Nutrition Supplements and School Fees

12 September 2009 No Comment
Diego of Colombia has such urgent health needs, we decided to ask Children International if some of the money raised so far by generous Aura’s House donors could be given to him in advance. Luckily this was not a problem and he received some of the most needed items from our ongoing Emergency Project for Diego of Colombia. Please consider making a small gift towards our goal.

Children International transferred $445 to their agency in Cartagena to provide Diego with an immediate supply of PediaSure to help him with his condition. They made the payment of Diego’s school fees for the next few months, provided him with a uniform, and purchased four required textbooks. Also, the agency provided him with a new pair of shoes, five shirts, underwear, and a watch.

The Cartagena agency indicated that both Diego and his aunt were very grateful for these special gifts. The food supplements are a tremendous help to them and provide Diego with the nourishing food. Thanks to everyone who has helped so far to make Diego’s life so much brighter.
